Today’s focus was learning how to out up rope ladders, along with the knots that are needed.

Ayaz and Jessie mastered these and were able to help others.

“I re-created a swing using the rope ladder. Instead of have a middle rung I took that out and sat on the bottom one and swung holding to top one.” (Jessie)

“I learnt a knew word today: succulent means juicy.” (Romi)

“I made a broom and a swing. First I had to ask for help as I struggled. After that I mastered it and then helped others.” (Paula)

“Today I made my own swing and remembered my memories from when I was five years old in Bulgaria.” (Koko)


Mrs Parsons brought us a hairy, bright green caterpillar with black and yellow markings, which we identified as being the larva of the transverse moth.
